Our latest research shows that the not-for-profit specialist advice sector is facing a £17.5 million funding deficit in 2022-23.

This will result in over 36,800 vulnerable people losing access to specialist advice, and as a consequence many of them will fall into crisis.

This latest research builds on work commissioned by the Community Justice Fund (CJF) earlier in 2021, in which Pragmatix, a leading data consultancy demonstrated the beneficial financial impact of appropriate specialist advice, accessed at the appropriate time.
